Special fair events include product-launching sessions and networking events. Seminars range from smart device, wireless charging, innovation strategies and consumer electronics trends to testing and certification in Hong Kong and regulations for exporting products to Japan.

The Hong Kong International ICT Expo turns 10 this year in fine fashion, welcoming more than 600 exhibitors from around the world, a new exhibitor record for the fair. Group pavilions from Australia, Canada, the Chinese mainland, India, New Zealand and Taiwan are participating.
